An explosion hit a gas pipeline in northeastern Syria late Tuesday in the first attack on the country's energy infrastructure since protests erupted in March, a human rights activist said.

"The explosion hit the gas pipeline last night at 11 pm (20:00 GMT) in al-Tayyaneh northeast of the town of Mayadin," the director of the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, Rami Abdel Rahman, told Agence France Presse in Nicosia.

State-owned al-Ikhbariya television said it was an oil pipeline in Deir al-Zour province that was hit and that the blast had caused no casualties and "limited damage".

Go ahead, idiots. Keep giving the regime an excuse to punish you even more harshly. Cole is coming to your rescue, just like they did with the khawanas on May 7th. IDIOTS.
